The fourth album in the Twilight Sessions series. Like the previous four releases in this series, this is a collection of improvised live recordings. In places, very ambient: long, drawn out pieces that evolve slowly, creating quite an emotive and evocative sound. Each piece starts as a blank canvas with no preconceived notion of where the music will go. Notes and noises are played from synths, guitar, voice, clarinet and samples and fed into one or two loops which repeat and layer and decay....

Eko_Fisk's sixth release on BFW is, in his own words, a kind of a space opera that came to me after watching some scifi movies... I developed a plot and soundtrack in my head. This is a collection of short ambient electronic songs. Spacey and atmospheric but tinged with an eerie darkness. A wonderful piece of work.

The second release on BFW recordings by Michael Cowhey. Voyage into the Unknown is a short collection in seven parts.

The sixth compilation from BFW recordings, featuring music from current and future BFW releases, from October 2010 to January 2011.

The second in the Twilight Sessions series. This is very ambient: long, drawn out pieces that evolve slowly, creating quite an emotive and evocative sound, but with a dub edge.

Beautiful and chilled. 'The Snow Imposed Silence' is the wonderful new album from Cousin Silas. Many of you will know this music from his previous releases on Fflint Central, Earth Monkey and justnotnormal, as well as appearances on several compilations. But for those of you new to this artist, this is a lush, drifting ambient album. Think of Namlook or Tangerine Dream and you are somewhere close, though this album has a unique flavour.

The third release on BFW recordings from Closer Contact is a collaboration with Meteer. This is an expertly crafted album of abstract ambience. But don't assume that this is a cold album, beause it certainly isn't! Stripped almost completely of melody or rhythm, this is warm, friendly and quite psychedelic. What is left is minimal, beautiful and intelligent. All songs written, arranged, mixed, recorded and produced by Magnus Larsson & Bjorn Asserhed spring 2010.

The seventh album in the Twilight Sessions series. Like the first five volumes, this is an album of completely improvised, live ambient music. Each piece starts as a blank canvas. The music is built around a long, slowly decaying loop. Notes are added from synths, guitar, voice and clarinet and over time, they built into grand, atmospheric soundscapes. Sometimes, however, I forget to press record when something wonderful is created. On these occasions, I can only capture the loop that has...

A selection of live, improvised recordings from March, April and May 2012, performed on piano, synths, flute and clarinet plus a whole host of electronic wizardry. My studio set up is constantly evolving and this album takes advantage of that. This album includes two early experiment with playing live instruments (flute on 'Voices inside my head' and clarinet on 'Denner's travels in harsh static') through pitch pedals.

The new album of live ambient music performed by Bing Satellites during December 2013. The album is also available now on gatefold CD from bingsatellites.bigcartel.com The music is played into a long, slowly decaying loop. These loops are quite long (often around 90 seconds or more) and with very little rhythm to speak of, it is difficult to know precisely where I am in the loop, so I can add notes and sounds where I see fit, but can never know exactly what I am adding these notes to....

Prolific ambient musician Bing Satellites returns with an album of slow, drifting ambient music. In his own words - Record everything! That is the rule I try to live by. The music on this album was recorded in one week in March 2012, a week when I was rather unwell and thought I had done very little other than take my cold medicine and watch TV in bed. I played a few soothing tunes on the piano (well, my facsimile of a piano) from time to time, but it came as quite a surprise to find that all...

The new experimental ambient EP from Bing Satellites. A heady mix of ambient dub and glitchy electronics along with lush strings and atmospheres. The songs on this EP, unusually for me, all came to life through different processes: Sleepwalking is built around the rhythms of a loop of sound put through a resonator. The sound I recorded when I stuck a microphone out of my window. At that moment, a couple of neighbours were putting out their rubbish. That is what you can hear at the start and...

All music written, performed and produced by Bing Satellites. Something a wee bit different from Bing Satellites. An album of chilled, glitchy ambient music heavily inspired by All The Lost Souls, the collaboration between myself, Getzel and piper_ben.

A collection of songs based around guitar and fretless bass. Blissful ambience finishing with the apocalyptic post rock of 'Where I Stand'.These songs were recorded over the last few years, using different techniques and equipment for each song.

The second in a new series of live, improvised ambient albums. Another 15 quiet ambient songs - mainly piano and baritone guitar - with 15 accompanying photographs. How the music is created: A 16 bar phrase is played. That phrase is fed into a slowly decaying 16 bar loop, similar to the one used in Twilight Sessions. That loop is fed into a slowly decaying 6 bar loop which repeats the first loop every 6 bars, so that soon, there are several layers of the original phrase that interact and create...
